Gorgeous Movie Stars!

We have a fun contest going on right now...daily photos will be posted on the Poodle Blog for the next few weeks. A prize of a $30 Amazon gift certificate (you can literally buy ANYTHING on Amazon!) will be given to the person who has the most daily comments of either 1) identifying the dog who is pictured in the photo, or 2) giving the photo a cute caption. That's all there is to it, easy to win!
This family of Poodles are wonderful ambassadors for the breed, because of their training for the movies they star in! You will find an article or two on this blog about this unusual color pattern, which was actually present in Poodles when the breed was first developed.
i think most Poodle blog readers will have an easy time guessing whose these lovely dogs are, since I am including this photo with a BIG clue--their beautiful owner sitting with them! One of the stars was just a young pup this photo was taken a few months back.

No, she is a not a breeder...the owner of these dogs is just one of the most dedicated Poodle owners I have ever met. She truly loves Standard Poodles, and is about the most amazing dog trainer (of any breed) that I have ever met, plus she is a very talented writer, movie producer, photographer...I could go on and on.

Name the lovely lady in the picture plus name all 4 of her Poodles and your contest entry for this post will go in as 5 entries--so when you read this post, as long as the contest is still going on, take advantage of getting 5 chances to win instead of just one!

Flying Attack Dog Poodles?

A little late but Happy Independence Day to my US friends!

And now for some fun!!! Surely those of you who are creative with captions will appreciate 8 year old Scout L'Abbe, who is obsessive about chasing butterflies, snowballs and anything that flies!

Don't forget the contest, see info below---easiest way ever to win a $30 Amazon gift certificate!

Who are these handsome landscapers?

Don't forget the contest! You can scroll down and find out whose Poodles are on the tractor by looking at older posts on the blog, or just post a cute caption (this photo is just begging for an adorable caption!)

Poodle Blogger Photo Fun Contest

You don't have to submit a picture, just your comment! Thank you Rick Miles for this lovely photo of white fluffy Poodle joy with a mountain in the background--heavenly!

Identify these Poodles and Win, Win, Win!!!

A wonderful surprise came in the mail this week--an entire CD of Poodle photos taken at a recent Poodle party up at Poodle Mountain in New Hampshire. I call this one "the real reason lots of folks call them "french Poodles"!

But I desperately need your help, as i don't know the names of the Poodles or the people in most of the photos. So let's have a contest!

OK, OK, I know...you're thinking....not fair, because perhaps you were not fortunate enough to be up at the Poodle party because maybe, like me, you are down south and cannot travel all the way to New Hampshire at the drop of a hat. So if you want to enter and don't know the dog's name, then just submit a cute caption instead.

To make things a bit more fair, I'll throw in a photo every now and then that you should be able to identify just from reading this blog, Poodles who are "regulars" here (but were not at the poodle party, such as the Poodle actors from Canine Horizons, or one of those featured in photographer Chris L'Abbe's work which she often shares on the Poodle blog, or photos shared by my Poodle friends Jeanne Haight and Donna Trebert).

Remember these guys pictured above? If you don't know their names, remember you can enter just by submitting a caption!

So expect some very cute Poodle photos coming through soon....we'll post about 25 and see which reader has correctly guessed names or added an adorable caption the most often. Future photos will come through with a quick link to this post, so we won't have to repeat the "rules" every time. All entries must be as comments on the blog, so encourage your dog friends to become blog followers and commenters! The winner will receive a $30 gift certificate to Amazon, where you can find just about anything, from Poodle toys to people toys!

Many thanks to our blog photo contributors--Rick Miles, Chris L'Abbe, Jeanne Haight,Donna Trebert, Charlene Dunlap of Canine Horizons and more!

Contest ends on or about the end of August, or whenever at least 25 adorable photos full of Poodle fun have been posted! So have all your friends start following the Poodle Blogger and entering today by identifying the models, or giving them a great caption! Remember the prize is something anyone can use, you can always pass it along to your favorite dog rescue group if you are not an Amazon shopper yourself. Enjoy!
